Telescopes may be the closest things we have to time machines: the further in space we look, the earlier in the history of the universe we get to see. By observing galaxies across cosmic time, we can figure out how they have evolved from the birth of the universe all the way to the present. Find out how observing galaxies may be our best chance of figuring out the dark secrets of the Universe and lead us to understanding the supermassive black holes that lurk at their centres. Dr Amelie Saintonge shares with us the fascinating story of cosmic collisions, bending space and incredible feats of science and engineering!
Dr Amelie Saintonge is an associate professor of Astrophysics at UCL. She studies the formation and evolution of galaxies, using the world's largest radio telescopes to find out the makings of distant galaxies. Originally from Canada and having completed her PhD studies at Cornell University (USA), she held research positions in Switzerland and Germany before joining UCL in 2013 as a Royal Society Research Fellow. A keen public speaker, Dr Saintonge has recently addressed audiences at the Royal Society Summer Exhibit, the Hay Festival and New Scientist Live.
